New Word of the Day: Plumb.
v.tr. The act, performed by the Left and their friends in the MSM, of publicly scrutinizing the private life of any individual, public or private, who makes Barack Obama look bad or assists Barack Obama in making himself look bad or challenges him in any way; with the purpose of discrediting that individual and hopefully destroying his/her life/career, or at least intimidating them (and anyone | Read More »
A Common Sense Response to Liberal Rants
First off, the notion that healthcare is a right. But what exactly is a right? This term is used in a very broad manner. I think Walter Williams said it best when he said a right is something that applies universally to all so long as it does not put a burden or consequence on anyone else. For example, a persons’ right to speak, does | Read More »
Joe’s Not Playing the Game
Much has been made of the now infamous Joe the Plumber. The new middle-class spokesman, second only to Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has been thrust upon the scene by accident. But to his credit, he as risen to the challenge, and answered the questions in a refreshingly I’m-not-running-for-office manner. He isn’t perfect, as the Associated Press and the media have all too eagerly pointed out, | Read More »
Polling Data on Joe the Plumber?
I just checked Rasmussen’s website, and the news is this: Obama leads McCain nationally 51%-45% (ugh) and there is polling data on Joe the Plumber. Yes, for some reason, Rasmussen decided to poll voters on Joe. Here are highlights from the poll: 44% of voters agree with Barack Obama on “spreading the wealth around,” 42% oppose it. 69% of Democrats think Obama is right, 78% | Read More »
Joe the Plumber Comes to Virginia
This afternoon I attended the McCain rally in Woodbridge, Virginia. The crowd was quite boisterous and enthusiastic — even when MCCain commented that the polls put him about 6 points down right now. There were plenty of signs in the crowd, and while many of them must have been prepared by the campaign (a common practice), there were clearly some home-made ones. I snapped a | Read More »

Obama mocks the American Dream
Recently, Junior Senator Barack Obama was stumping door to door in an Ohio neighborhood where he met a man playing football in his yard. The man was a working man named Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, 34, of suburban Toledo, Ohio. He is commonly called “Joe the Plumber” now by the media and the Presidential nominees. Joe the Plumber had a dream, the American Dream. He told | Read More »
I am not Joe…
but my Dad is. Dad is a small town electrician who also does some heating and cooling work and who is self-employed in a small business. He literally has a mom and pop operation. Mom is his secretary. They live and work in a little Midwest farming community. Dad only attended a tech school, worked for others for a while, and eventually bought the business | Read More »
Media Not Doing Their Job…. AGAIN!!
Cross-posting sections of this story I posted over at We Rush Daily Only sections because I went off on a tear and blasted a few folks… something about dim bulbs… anyway I digress… “…Recently, Jonathon Martin posted an article on the Politico; entitled “Joe not a licensed plumber, McCain’s enthusiasm not diminished”. Though short and “sweet” rehashes what was reported in the Toledo Blade (Oh | Read More »
An Open Letter to Barack Obama: Who Speaks for “Joe”?
Sen. Obama: (aka Senator Government) I hope you are felling very proud of yourself tonight. A decent, hard-working, citizen of our country respectfully asked you a policy question and his life is being destroyed. Oh no, he did nothing to deserve this. It was YOU, Senator. Please, please, don’t tell us that “you” didn’t do it. Just the way you blame Sen. McCain and Gov. | Read More »
Sliming Joe the Plumber
An ordinary citizen speaks up about how federal policies affect his family and his pocketbook, and bloggers dive into his personal life. His finances, his address, his background and family connections are all splashed all over the internet as bloggers line up to debate whether the instant celebrity is all he appears to be. Many feel he’s concealing enough about his background to make his | Read More »
Support Joe the Plumber
Check out Dan’s post below. Joe the Plumber just happened to ask Barack Obama a question. Obama went to Joe. Joe did not go to Obama. Now the left is out to destroy Joe. Sign our petition. Let Joe know you support him. Thanks to the awesome folks at Kimbia for tracking me down and setting me straight on the petition. It wasn’t a Kimbia | Read More »
Never Question Obama
You will find no better illustration of the hazards of simply asking a question Barack Obama doesn’t want to answer than the frenzy on the part of Obama’s campaign and his allies in the media and the Left blogs to attack Joe the Plumber. The amazing thing is, this isn’t a guy who was set up by one of the campaigns to tell a sob | Read More »
Don’t fall in the Trap
The Media is going nuts over who Joe the Plumber is and what his background Might Be. This is the typical diversion to take attention away from Obama’s Socialist Spread the Wealth Comment. I believe that this comment, as well as a good showing by John McCain at the Debate, has the public taking another look at what Obama really is and what he is | Read More »
